"DOUG: When we were recording "But the Little Girls Understand" I got a 1963 Casino with a Bigsby tremolo. It was just like Paul McCartney's and I fell in love with it. " - excerpt from his Epiphone interview.

Fieger's most used guitar during his time with the Knack was definitely sunburst Fender Stratocaster. He used this in many shows, as well as in famous concert, "Rock'n'Roll Fun House" with The Knack.

In this interview, Fieger says.
"DOUG: I did take some lessons but they wanted to teach me stuff like "Lady of Spain" and I really wasn't interested in learning that single-note kind of square music. Not long after that I met a guy who lived across the street from me that was in a band. By this time I had gotten a Country Gentleman which was a really beautiful and expensive guitar. Well, he offered me a gig in his band if I would switch over to bass and let this other guy named John Corey play my Country Gentleman! (Laughs) I had to go out and rent a bass while this other guy was playing my guitar! Anyway, after that I became a bass player for the next fifteen years. I really never played guitar in a band until The Knack. John Corey and I went on to form a band called Sky that got signed right out of high school. We made a couple of records with Jimmy Miller who produced the Rolling Stones and Traffic."
So, link which says "Country Gentleman" leads to Gibson's product list, where Country Gentleman is shown. So, that is Gibson, not Gretsch Country Gentleman.
