I'm planning on buying this guitar. The body of the guitar seems damaged, can this affect something? The aesthetics aren't a problem to me.
The scuffing on the front of the body? Looks like a typical wear pattern for an oil-finished guitar that's gotten a lot of playtime. Nothing to worry about there. It's enough wear that I'd be curious about how the frets are holding up, but they're probably fine - looks like a well-played, well-loved guitar.
