Spanish term or phrase: peculiar interregno práctico
Quisiéramos evitar discutir los conceptos de música popular - música culta, que nos llevarían a un terreno alejado de la historia misma de la guitarra y de su peculiar interregno prático

eh??

English translation:peculiar actual interregnum
Explanation:
As the word <interregnum> also means a period of freedom from customary authority, your sentence may refer to the times where its players have used this instrument as they wish, free from academical restrains of any kind. Just considering the history of popular music in the last fifty years, one could say that no instrument, apart from the guitar and the human voice, can be used so freely and with such powerful results, being Clapton and Hendrix two of the most obvious examples.

Cheerio,

V
