On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Douglas mainly uses a Gibson CS-356, a black custom Gibson Les Paul, or a custom Gibson SG. He owns more than fifteen electric guitars, including a Gibson Goldtop (given to him by Vernon Reid), a Gibson Dusk Tiger and his favourite: a '61 Epiphone Crestwood. In 2013, Gibson began producing the "Captain Kirk" Custom SG. He also owns an acoustic Gibson J-200 and a Gibson Hummingbird. In honor of what would have been Roy Orbison's 75th birthday, Kirk played Orbison's signature Gibson ES-335 on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, April 25, 2011.

The Crestwood had its headstock broken in March 2013 when Prince threw it in the air following his performance of "Bambi" on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Prince had admired the guitar (which Douglas had planned to play at a Prince tribute concert) and asked to borrow it for his performance. Douglas said, "Right after this happened I went right into the control room and he was there and he apologized and he said he would take care of it."
