I edit the question a little...

What is the authoritative text/version of the Torah and Kanakh for Ashkenazi and Sefardi Jews? With that I mean, which text do they use when they create a scroll and in their personal studies etc?

I read somewhere it is the Second Rabbinic Bible and at another place (much less reliable source) it's Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia.

  • @sabbahillel It’s a reference to Yaakov b Hayyim’s 1524 edition of Mikraot Gedolot

  • @JoelK I thought the question was about a sefer torah, not about a printed edition of mikraos gedolos Jul 17, 2020 at 16:17
