i know d'addario makes a set like that. other companies have either a .054 or something in that range. a you can get single .054 strings in bulk from musiciansfried.com and others from your local dealer.

I buy my low B as a seperate, which is a good thing as I don't like .54 and prefer .52, but that's just me. I think most guitar shops will sell you the extra string, they do for me!

My 7-string also came with the 9-54 gauge.
The .054 can be bought sepeate at your local guitar shop (normally).

I also buy my low B as a seperate, normally a .060 to have that heavy 7-string feel...

I use a .058 for my B on my UV.

I have a Warmoth guitar I built years ago that I have tuned to A that's strung .014-.064
