Thats the main reason I just order strings in bulk individual gauges.
I don't like the huge gauge sets, and most sets in the 50-54 range have plain 3rd strings. Also many brands either don't make, or at least don't include the 20w or 22w in any of their packaged sets. GHS has always sounded fine to me, and they stock almost every possible gauge except maybe some of the super-sizes.
