Would you buy a pair of expensive shoes,by mail order,to wear in Panama without putting them on your feet ?.
Guitars are a VERY personal thing and what suits one doen't necessarily suit another.
Might be woth a flight to the nearest available city in the USA - to play as many many guitars as possibe (even second hand) than doing what you suggest. I write as a person from the UK.
It's a big commitment / investment and if you want to enjoy it for many years to come - you really need to get what suits YOU .
