    The gap is too much and makes it painful to play. The guitar is a cheap Rs.2500 Jimm.
    Any suggestions, tips, warnings related to reducing the gap ?
    Also, i want to put an extra stud to fit a leather strap. Is this safe ?

    Get it done by a guitar shop. You need to lower the action.

    You can put in an extra stud as well, but again, get it done by a professional as you may splinter/crack the wood.
