Is this a good combination? I'm planning to build a frankenstrat.
I want mahogany body because it gives more sustain and has darker tone than alder/poplar. Another reason also because the Seymour Duncan JB is so damn bright so the body is to tame it down.

Ive had a few guitars with the same woods, id assume its normal. and yeah, that JB doesnt sound right in anything but mahogany, i tried on in a maple build once, and the damn thing made my ears hurt, far too bright, but in mahogany its perfect.

Your bridge and nut choice will play far more of a role in that department.

It will be a Floyd Rose setup with a massive bridge sustain block I custom ordered. I tested on a friend's guitar and it was su-it!
