I know that Freemasons will willingly allow you to take an oath on the book of your choice, to an extent. As far as the actual book's, I believe they use a Masonic Bible, Masonic Quayran, ect. I don't know whether there has been any changes to the book's, I'd imagine not?

as the above stated clearly. Some US lodges I have seen at least one confuse this with being ONLY the holy bible can be used for oaths etc. Correct me if I am wrong but oaths can be used on any.
In a home mades scottish rite video on youtube it shows quran,torah,holy bible and I believe another holy doctrine, maybe hindu.

From what I understand, there are some "Masonic" Bibles, which are bibles, but the footnotes make especial reference to masonic lore and teachings. So you can imagine the section on the building of the temple of solomon has, say, the KJV text, and then footenotes that refer to Hiram Abif and the traditions around him.
