Looks to me the guitar has been impacted bluntly at about that top bout area and they are cracks.
I wouldn't buy it.
Why spend 200 for cracked or iffy damaged items when you can buy 500 brand new.
Over a course of a year or less, you won't see the difference in money spent but you'll live w the qualitative differences for the rest of relationship to that guitar.
Having several hobbies and diy work competing for my pension and time, the opportunity to buy a decent guitar at low cost appeals. Despite my current enthusiasm, I can't be sure that I will settle into a regular practice routine, though i am encouraged by the training programmes on this site. I would rather start with an instrument with good tone and action. I don't want to be put off by using a poorly built guitar.
I can invest in something better if, after a year, I am still enjoying playing. So far I have had no reply to my email, and it may be that my questions - mainly about the nature of the cracks - are too difficult to answer. Of course it may have been sold. Meanwhile I am learning more from here and elsewhere.
